Cabinet Photographs of the Augustine Family of Dexter and Garland, Maine
Set of three cabinet photographs of people identified as Joseph Augustine, Belle Augustine and Phillip Augustine, all of Dexter, Maine, and all taken by the Call studio of Dexter, Maine.
From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]
Joseph Augustine was born about 1837 in Italy and emigrated to the Dexter, Maine, area about 1856.
On 30 March 1862 at Dexter, Maine, he married Ella Arabella "Belle" Remick, daughter of Daniel H. and Abigail B. (Robertson) Remick. Belle was born about March 1846.
They had a daughter Cora Estelle Augustine, born 17 April 1863 at Dexter, Maine. In the 1880 Census of Dexter, Maine, there were also sons Joseph, age 14,and Philip, age 10, listed.
Belle died 2 July 1885 at Dexter, Maine. Her photograph must have been taken near the end of her life as she seems middle-aged.
Joseph Augustine, Sr., died in 1923 at Dexter, Maine.
The photographs might have been taken at the same time, near the end of Belle's life, Philip appears to be about fifteen or so, in his photograph below.
If you have corrections to the information above or information to share, please leave a comment or contact me directly. I'd especially like more information on Joseph, Jr., and Philip Augustine.
